Baby Gaining Weight
My two cuties relaxing
One of my biggest concerns is about my baby gaining weight... or rather, the lack of it.
My 8 month old son is a teenie thing and I just don't understand why. My 4 year old daughter always was above the 95th percentile for everything. I'm extatic if my son reaches the 5th percentile.
He eats a ton and still the ounces are only creeping up super super slowly. What can I do to help him put on more weight?
He already eats:
- 2 jars in the morning with a little rice cereal and about 6 ounces of milk,
- has two more jars of vegetables and yogurt and rice cereal with another 6 ounces of milk for lunch, and
- 1-2 jars of veggies and fruit for dinner with another 6 ounces of milk and rice cereal.
Between all of those feedings he gets more milk and also gets up once every night for more milk.
I don't see when or how I could give this cutie more to eat or drink.
Any suggestions on any higher calorie foods or other things I should be feeding him to help him put on and keep on the weight?
Otherwise my son is doing great.
He's almost walking by himself, scoots, blabs a lot since he has to compete with his sister to be heard, rolls around and sits up by himself for long periods of time. He's developing great. It's just his weight I'm very concerned about.I'm new to this site and so far I'm loving it - great job - keep it up!
